Today was first day of school for 2011. Just met form teacher and listened to a lot of talks. Not feeling really enthu about school right now. At least tomorrow end at 12.55. Considerably early. But then CCA has been changed to Mondays and alternate Thursdays. So Thursday end school early also no use. 213 is a RaM class, stand for Raffles Mobile, means each of us get a Macbook for a year. Happy and sad. Happy cuz got free Macbook, sad cuz my IT skills very bad. Sorry using so bad English. Not really in that mood.

Feel really weird greeting last year Sec 2s as Sec 3s and last year Sec 3s as Sec 4s. And we wont be able to greet sec 2s anymore cuz thats us. Unless we greet ourselves...Wonder how many Sec 1s will join this year.

I dont really write new year resolutions or follow them for that matter. But thought this year should just write some, as a guideline:

1. Sleep early when there is school the next day. (Recharges the brain)
2. Start on PTs and projects right after they are assigned, instead of dragging and waiting till the last moment.
3. Finish PTs and projects 3 days before due date for sufficient checking time.
4. Spend less money. (I didn't earn them, after all)
5. Spend free time studying instead of playing.
6. Go through the stuff studied at end of every week.
7. Start preparing for exams one month earlier, so no need to cram everything in at last moment.
8. Pay more attention in class. (Includes not sleeping)
9. Practise more piano so can improve faster.
10. Finish all homework. (Keep up with lessons)
11. Be nice to my juniors. (But not too nice)
12. Don't get parents angry so often.
13. Learn to type faster. (Will benefit my using of a Macbook)
14. Be more interested in Science and other subjects that I used to hate.
15. Eat less potato chips. (Helps in weight loss)
16. Treasure my Sec 2 year and not reminisce last year too much.
17. Be prepared for lessons.
18.Watch less dramas.
19. Spend less time on the Internet.
20. Learn to love myself.

Yup. You might notice that most of them is related to studies. I guess that is under the influence of parents and teachers reminding again and again that Sec 2 is a really important year because we choose our subject combinations that will affect our future...

So long! :D

The Holidays

Today is the last day of the school hols, well it was supposed to be tmr, but then there is CCAO tmr so still have to go to school. I always seem to let the holidays flash pass, without actually doing anything meaningful. The mindset is that there is still plenty of time left, can always do it later. But then the day before school reopens, the mind start to think of what it accomplished during the hols, and start to panick when it realises that the time has gone to waste. Like today I had didnt know whether to make use of the 'last' free day to relax and watch dramas or do some work. In the end, I did both. Watched Unriddle starring Rui En and did Math and Chinese.

I shall now try to sum up my holidays:

Hong Kong
Wild Wild Wet
Escape Theme Park
Primary School
Christmas Eve @ Orchard Rd
Countdown @ Marina Bay


Platoon meetings
NCOs Outing
Company Chalet
Prize Presentation
New Year

Personal Taste
Nanny Daddy
The Champion

Chinese textbook
Vocab exercises

Well, this holiday was somewhat more enriching and fulfilling that the rest. It may be due to it being longer than usual, or the presence of platoonmates, or the traveling to Hong Kong, or my cousins being their usual fun-filled selves, or my mother making me study. Anyways, the hols are over and they are gone. So I shall stop pondering over them and instead look forward to the promising future. Feeling both excited and nervous about the first day of school.

Good luck everyone! :D

My First

Yo! So I guess this is my first post. Um, nothing significant really. Just thought that setting up a livejournal account would be a good way to preserve my memories as a teenager. Anyway, this blog is solely for my own purpose, so if I write anything that offends you, no one asked you to read it. AND, if you know you are not supposed to be here, LEAVE BEFORE I FIND OUT AND TRACK YOU DOWN.

K, that having been settled, the school is RGS and the class is 213. And also a Part B. Oh God, saying that really creeps me out. It is not about the scoldings or the new learnings, cuz I know I have really good platoonmates <3 , it is more of I being scared of not doing good enough. No, please dont think that I am a perfectionist.

I am anticipating this new academic year, and although challenges are bound to appear, I will at least have the experiences of last year.. Like not leaving PTs and AAs till the last moment. Hmmm. Also, school hours have been altered quite a bit: generally earlier dismissal times, but no more lunches, and Friday CES has been moved to the first two blocks instead of the last two. Hope it works out well. For everyone. I guess you must be tired of my rantings by now, so ta ta! :D
